We’ve never really got involved with the pub quiz either, but we thought perhaps it was time we formed a team. Every team has to have a catchy name, so the five of us sat around a table to have a brainstorming session in the hope of coming up with something which best described our posse. United Friends, Friends United, Clever Friends, Friendly Five – the names kept coming. Then, tongue firmly in cheek, I suggested Friends Using Combined Knowledge. I said we could be known by our acronym.
Well, we all fell about laughing – except Rosey who pulled one of her worried looks. Either she didn’t know what an acronym was, or she couldn’t work out what it would be.
.‘I don’t get it’ she giggled! ‘What’s so funny?’
We told her to get some paper and a pen and write it down. Suddenly she got it! She grinned from ear to ear, and then suddenly snapped into a disapproving frown.
‘We can’t call ourselves that!’ she squealed. ‘What would my mum say?’
We settled on The Famous Five!
